  • 3 lbs. pork belly
  • 1 ½ tablespoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 cloves garlic crushed


  • Arrange pork belly slab in a steamer. Steam for 1 hour. Remove from the steamer and let it cool down.
  • Poke the skin using a sharp tool such as a metal skewer or a meat tenderizer with a sharp needle blade. Rub salt all over the pork. Let it stay for 10 minutes.
  • Combine olive oil and garlic. Rub all over the pork belly. Let it stay for at least 1 hour. Note: I usually marinate the pork overnight for best results.
  • Remove the garlic from the pork. Arrange inside a turbo broiler. Broil in 365F for 45 minutes or until crispy.
  • Serve. Share and enjoy!
